§ 2 Content, restriction of the offer

(1) TransparentShare is an application that evaluates publicly available price, company and market data and recommends shares for buying or selling. The user also has the option of managing his own shares. TransparentShare provides the user with a simple and comprehensible stock valuation with e-mail notification. The three possible ratings are:

  1. “Buy recommendation”, the share is recommended for buying on this day;
  2. “Watch”, the stock should be watched because it can become a buy recommendation and
  3. “No recommendation”, no purchase is recommended.

According to the TransparentShare method, a share is a buy recommendation if the rating reaches a certain number of points and the current share price is at least 10 % below the annual high. The rating is made up of 12 different key figures (parameters):

  1. Return on equity
  2. Equity ratio
  3. Profit margin
  4. Current price-earnings ratio (P / E)
  5. Price-earnings ratio (P / E) over 5 years
  6. Price change in the last 6 months compared to the index
  7. Price change in the last 12 months compared to the index
  8. Price momentum
  9. Expected earnings growth
  10. Change in profit estimate
  11. Reaction to quarterly figures
  12. Price-to-book ratio (P / B)

The method of determining the key figures is based on the Levermann method, which Susan Levermann described in her book "Der entspannte Weg zum Reichtum (The relaxed way to wealth)". Ms. Levermann's method was refined and supplemented by TransparentShare.

For each share, the user receives a daily description of how the individual points of the rating for each individual key figure have been calculated or come about. These key figures are also described in detail in the following annex: www.transparentshare.com/konzept . The meaning for the evaluation, the calculation and the evaluation of the respective key figure are described in detail there.
